MATRACA BERG, SUZY BOGGUSS & GRETCHEN PETERS
An Evening of Wine, Women & Song

Thursday, November 20th, 7:30 PM



Presented by Manske & Associates and The Clayworks at Disability Supports

Media Support by Anima Bella Spa, Salon & Boutique of Hutchinson

What happens when you put three women - three critically acclaimed, award-winning singer-songwriters, three old friends, three artists with three unique voices - on a stage together with some guitars and a bottle of good cabernet? You get Wine, Women & Song. The three women in question are Suzy Bogguss, Gretchen Peters and Matraca Berg.

All CMA winners, Suzy (Horizon Award), Gretchen (Song of the Year for "Independence Day") and Matraca (Song of the Year for "Strawberry Wine") first played a 10 city UK tour together in 2007 to huge critical and audience acclaim. The three friends have a long history: Bogguss has co-written with both Berg and Peters, and recorded songs by both. Since that first sold-out UK tour, the women have been writing and recording together, and now they are taking the stage at the Fox Theatre on Thursday, November 20th.

There will also be a pre-concert event called Wine & Dine with the Fox at the Hutchinson Town Club, featuring appetizers, a sit-down dinner and wine pairings, and live music by local singer-songwriter Morgan Wilk. A combo ticket to both Wine & Dine with the Fox and the concert is only $100, while concert-only tickets will be available for $25. All tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, October 16th. Concert tickets can be purchased here online, while the Wine & Dine and Concert combo tickets can be purchased at the Fox Box Office, 18 East 1st Avenue, (877) FOX-SHOW, Monday - Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.


 














A Rockapella Christmas

Thursday, December 4th, 7:30 PM



They’ve become one of the world’s most sophisticated, lasting, and imitated vocal groups around today. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more influential one out there in this new era of network television a cappella shows like NBC’s The Sing-Off, movies like Pitch Perfect, and innumerable college vocal groups that own the corner of cool on campuses everywhere.

Since the early ’90’s when they first achieved national television fame on PBS’s Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, they’ve toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch. ”Often imitated – never duplicated” applies here. Now they’re better than ever!

As one of the progenitors of the astonishing full-band sound of “contemporary” a cappella, Rockapella has shown every audience the raw power of pure vocal talent and originality. “There’s nothing between us and the audience – it’s very human music – with nothing missing” says Rockapella’s human beatbox Jeff Thacher. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors…but never lame.

We make it rock and make it interesting,” explains Scott Leonard, the group’s chief songwriter, arranger and an architect of their ever-evolving and imitated dynamic sound. USA Today summed up the lasting appeal like this: “The best musical instrument of all is the human voice – if you’ve seen Rockapella you know that’s the truth.”

The current Rockapella line-up features Scott Leonard (since 1991, High Tenor), Jeff Thacher (1993, Vocal Percussionist), George Baldi III (2002, Bass), Steven Dorian (2010, Tenor), and Calvin Jones (2013, Tenor). This line-up marks a new generation of Rockapella, keenly focused on musical excellence. “People have a hard time believing it’s just us making all of that music. It’s still those same elements that make modern band music: percussion, bass, melody and harmonies,” says Scott. “Our success in the art of it – it’s not what you do, but how you do it!” adds Jeff. And Rockapella has indeed proven that forming original pop & soul magic onstage is what sets them apart.
